Even after Chinese actors Fan Bingbing and Li Chen personally confirmed that they had ended their engagement in June last year, there were still some folks who either refused to believe that the couple had really called it quits, or kept looking out for little signs of possible reconciliation.
Those in denial of the split are probably going crazy over the latest development. On September 13, the Shanghai night sky was lit up with brightly coloured drones that spelled out the words “FBB”, “happy birthday”, and “I [heart] Big Black Ox”.
“FBB” very likely stands for “Fan Bingbing” as she turns 39 tomorrow (Sep 16), and “Big Black Ox” is Li Chen’s nickname. Before long, there were speculations that Li Chen had ordered this over-the-top display to mark Bingbing’s birthday (in a very spoil market way, we might add). It was even rumoured that the 41-year-old spent almost HK$700,000 (S$123,000) on the light show.
